The basic philosophy of the Corporation is that people come together as a Catholic Community to share their resources, so as to enable the group to achieve more together, than they could individually. However, local autonomy will be fully respected and supported by the operations of the Corporation. Each participating school board keeps full control of its local curriculum by only participating in Corporation projects and by only using those cooperatively developed documents which it feels it needs.
